Fundación Bomberos de Argentina


Agency: Hoy


Argentina has suffered large native forest fires that have affected more than 1 million hectares in recent years. Although firefighters have fought tirelessly to fight them, the news did not always receive the media coverage that the seriousness and relevance of the issue deserved, making it difficult to count on the support in donations that was needed.

The idea sought to solve this unforgivable mistake by capitalizing on another mistake. The campaign took over domains like those of the main news media, imitating users' most common typing errors to enter the same news websites. By mistakenly entering these domains, people could find a version of the news site but with a fundamental difference, this time the media was filled with news of the fires to generate awareness and raise funds for volunteer firefighters through the donation button on the SeSocio platform.

"With THE RIGHT MISTYPE, we seek to raise awareness about the importance that news about forest fires should have in the media. We managed to demonstrate that with one mistake we can solve a much more dangerous one, the one made by the media when they give a minimum amount of coverage to the fires taking place in our forests. The results still surprise us, since many readers of the main media are collaborating with donations, and this is very satisfactory for us", commented Damián Palopoli and Santiago Ledesma, Creative Directors of the campaign.

This professional campaign titled 'THE RIGHT MISTYPE' was published in Argentina in May, 2022. It was created for the brand: Fundación Bomberos de Argentina, by ad agency: Hoy. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 2 years ago.
